Adult Forum Bible Study

Adult Forum will be a Bible study focusing on the New Testament book of Colossians. Jeannie Canwell will lead the study today and the next two Sundays. Please bring your Bibles and come explore the Word of God together.

Community Garden

The garden workdays are on Saturdays from 9-11. This is a time when someone from the parish is present to open the shed and provide tools to use such as turning forks, hoes, and rake. We need adult members of the parish who are willing to supervise on Saturdays when volunteers show up looking for direction.  I’m looking for 5-6 people who can commit to 2 hours on a Saturday once every other month.  Please let me know you can help.

Coffee Hour Sponsors

Starting this Sunday, we are asking groups to pick a Sunday and sponsor coffee hour.  The Christian Formation Committee has this Sunday.  Check with your group or guild and let Penny in the office know what Sunday is good for you.  Other groups agreeing to take part in this are the Office Angels, Garden Committee and the Ladies Dinner Night.  Thank for participating in this important ministry.

Men’s BBQ

Our next Men’s BBQ is scheduled for Sunday, July 7 at 5:00 p.m.  We have accepted the challenge from the Ladies Dinner group to collect money for the Episcopal welcome sign! Our goal is to beat their $100.  If you plan on attending, please sign up on the sheet provided at the back of the church!

Join P.R.I.D.E.

Join the team of P.R.I.D.E., Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence.  This newly formed ministry will take pride in keeping our church and its grounds maintained and can only be done with your help and love of St. John’s!  Let Kevin Canwell or Ann Marie Addler know if you will participate.

Ladies Dinner/Bunco Night

Thank you Men’s BBQ for accepting our challenge!  Our next dinner is scheduled for July 18.  We will see you all there!

Soul Kitchen Dinner

Our next Soul Kitchen community dinner will be June 28, 2013. The Soul Kitchen Dinner shares a simple, nutritious meal and fellowship with anyone who comes through our door. It is our hope that the parish will join us the last Friday of each month for food and fellowship.
